The cables are quite stiff, but the connectors are small and very secure. Recommended!
This 30cm lead is fairly short, so measure up before buying, but will save having loads of cable coiled up inside the PC blocking airflow/cooling.
I ran the Samsung SSD performance tool & noted that the figures had changed with the new leads fitted: Random Read had reduced by 50 IOPS; Random Write had increased by 1,100 IOPS; Sequential Read had increased from 330 to 522 MB/sec & Sequential Write increased from 233 to 342 MB/sec. In practise, access times are observably quicker, & multi-tasked data is processed faster. If you have gone to the expense of installing high-speed drives, it makes sense to fit appropriate cables to get the best performance possible from them. These cables do just that with my SSD's.
They work fine, nice sturdy mechanism on them, easy to unlock but secure when in place.
One problem I have, and it is down to me and not the cable, is that the 30cm is a little short for even my tower. I only have a mATX case but if I plugged the cable into the SATA port (bottom of motherboard) and into my BR drive (top of the case) it bent the SATA port up because the cable was strained.
My solution was to cable tie the cable to the one below it, and to move the BR Drive down a slot, and now I'm all good.
Error on my part, I thought 30cm would be long enough but it wasn't.
All in all, good product, recommended, just check they'll be long enough before you purchase.
Highly recommend supplier and product .
